instructions

Other Supplies

River rocks (5-7”), Small rocks (for signs or rooftop), Paper plate, Water basin, Paper towels

Instructions

  1. Select river rocks that are large enough to accommodate the stencils. To prep the rocks for painting, wash with warm soapy water and let dry.
  2. Make copies of the stencils and cut and arrange the designs on your rocks.
  3. Paint one roof in a solid brown and let dry. Dry brush thatching in parchment over the brown.
  4. Create a moss roof effect by layering the three green paints by stippling with the stencil brush. Let dry.
  5. Tape the stencils in place as you go.
    • TIP: To successfully stencil using the 3” x 3” stencils on a texture surface, you will need to offload your stencil brush to almost dry to ensure no paint bleeding. To offload, dab the stencil brush in a puddle of paint, pounce on a paper towel to remove excess paint, then stencil using a tapping motion up and down on the open areas of the stencil. Two coats may be necessary on some rock surfaces. Let dry in between coats.
  6. Stencil on the doors and windows. Let dry.
  7. Stencil on the fence and mushrooms. Let dry.
  8. Stencil on the green vines. Let dry.
  9. Stencil on the white daisy (from the Flower Pot set) on each house in a tossed effect. Let dry.
  10. Using the detail brush, paint any last details such as grass, light in the windows, door knobs, hinges, flower centers, etc.
